Staff WriterPolice & Fire, RSS

Delaware State Police are investigating a serious injury crash into a residence that occurred early this morning in the Milton area.

On February 4, 2023, at approximately 12:30 a.m., a 2003 Mercedes-Benz E-320, operated by a 20-year-old male, was traveling southbound on Harbeson Road, just north of Diamond Farm Road at a high rate of speed. As the Mercedes approached a gradual right curve in the roadway, it failed to negotiate it and exited the east edge of Harbeson Road. The Mercedes continued traveling in a southeasterly direction striking a stop sign at the intersection of Diamond Farm Road and Harbeson Road. The Mercedes continued to travel across Diamond Farm Road and into the yard of a private residence located on the 17000 block of Harbeson Road. The Mercedes then overturned continuously until striking the attached garage of the residence. The Mercedes traveled through the exterior walls of the garage and came to a final rest, upright on top of the front of a parked 2019 Toyota 4-Runner.

The 20-year-old male operator of the Mercedes from Milton, DE, who was properly restrained was transported to an area hospital in critical condition.

Harbeson Road was closed for approximately 4 hours.
